PS5: we found a 1 TB SSD at a good price

News good deal PS5: we found a 1 TB SSD at a good price

The PS5 is a demanding console. So that you can enjoy your favorite video games without any restrictions, Sony has made sure that its console only accepts the best SSDs on the market for people who want to increase their storage space. And this increase is badly needed.

Crucial P5 Plus: a PS5 compatible NVMe SSD at a great price on Amazon

In 2022, almost everyone needs an SSD. At least, almost anyone interested in gaming or tech in general. If you want to build or upgrade your desktop PC, you need to buy an SSD. To give a gaming laptop a boost, you need to buy an SSD. If you want to increase your PS5 storage space, you need to buy an SSD.

We explain in detail the characteristics of the P5 Plus a little further down. Remember for the moment that this is one of the most powerful models on the market. Normally, with equivalent characteristics, 1 TB of SSD costs around 180€. Moreover, this is the launch price of the P5 Plus. But, at the moment, Amazon is offering a nice discount: only €129.

We always keep an eye on the price history and this price is very rarely reached for such a powerful SSD from a brand as reliable and renowned as the giant Crucial.

You’ll notice we’ve also slipped in a link to a heatsink. Indeed, some SSDs are sold with a heatsink included… but they cost several tens of euros more, whereas a heatsink “clips” in 1 second and only costs 7€.

If you are using this SSD in your PS5, we strongly recommend that you don’t save the heatsink. The P5 Plus will work without it but, in case of heating, you risk experiencing slowdowns, which is quite a shame when you buy a PCIe Gen 4.

In any case, do not panic, there is no risk of overheating or degradation. As we just said, if the P5 Plus gets a heat stroke, it reduces its performance itself in order to stay at a suitable temperature.

The Crucial PS5 Plus is a benchmark for 1TB SSDs

The P5 Plus is one of the best sellers from Crucial, an American brand known and recognized in this sector. Crucial products are ultra reliable. The proof: this SSD is guaranteed for 5 years.

We used a lot of technical terms above. We’ll explain it to you quickly. Already, what is an SSD? Solid State Drives are there to replace old-fashioned hard drives, those that rotate to burn your data. Compared to hard drives, SSDs are more compact, much more resistant (to extreme temperatures and drops) and above all MUCH faster.

Having a fast storage system doesn’t just transfer files faster. The biggest advantage it has is the reduction in loading time both on Windows, software and video games. That’s why the PS5 only accepts the fastest SSDs on the market. Without a racehorse, your experience on the next gen console is heavily impacted. Farewell to ultra-fast world changes on Ratchet and Clank, farewell to immersion in the Horizon Forbidden West universe…

The Crucial P5 Plus SSD is therefore a so-called Gen 4 SSD, compatible with the latest PCI Express 4.0 ports. Speeds compared to Gen 3 are two to three times faster and this model is capable of reaching 6600 MB/s in reading, which is well above the 5500 MB/s recommended by Sony. We specify “recommended” because in fact, any Gen 4 SSD will be recognized and will work. Below 5500 MB/s Sony mentions possible slowdowns in very rare cases.
